We were celebrating my friend’s wedding, which was to take place 2 days later. We chose this place because it was near our resort and looked like it had good food. When we first went in, they said they had to seat other groups first. I reminded them that we made reservations earlier that week because we had a busy schedule. After some time passed, they finally sat us down. The bride and groom to be ordered some drinks and we started talking about the wedding plans. We started noticing that the tables around us were being served their drinks, but not us. 25 minutes passed, we had our appetizers and still our drinks didn’t arrive. We asked our waitress why it was taking so long and they said the bar had a back up of orders. We mentioned that others were being served there drinks even though they arrived after us. Finally, they came to take our order and we asked about our drinks again. The groom to be wanted to make a toast to his bride to be. They told us they didn’t think we needed to be drinking since we were already hyper and in a celebratory mood.

I’ve never been so embarrassed by an establishment in my life. In fact, I was embarrassed for them. Why would a place with such a stellar rating be so rude and demeaning to patrons they’ve never had interactions with? I’m deeply disappointed by the treatment we got at this place.

Beautiful open restaurant. Service was OK, server seemed rushed and like she didn’t really have time for us. Drink orders took longer than we would have liked. Food was OK but not amazing, for the price we expected more. I would give it another shot just because it had such a nice atmosphere.

Had an awesome dinner at Keokis. Everything from our server to the drinks to the food and the ambiance was perfect! I would highly recommend if staying in Kauai.

We were seated promptly on the time of our reservation. Requested a booth and got it. Service staff was excellent and attentive to our questions and needs. Their baked Ono (fresh Wahoo, Keoki's Style) was amazing, Duroc Pork Ribs portion was huge and tasty, and the Prime Rib here is outstanding. Presentation is photo-worthy, though you might just decide to skip the Instagram post and dive right in (we did!). Their world-famous Hula Pie for dessert is a must, and for those who can't handle the towering slice of vanilla-macadamia ice cream on a cookie crust, the Banana Coconut Cream Pono Pie is also delightful. Live dinner music and the gentle swishing of the water features added ambiance to an already unforgettable night.

Seated promptly. Had to wait for my ice tea and the server did not know his beers. But he was friendly and helpful. Food was prepared well with a beautiful presentation. Fish duo my son had I feel the fish portions should have been slightly larger for the amount we were paying.

Food, we had fresh fish daily special, was very good. The fish choice recommended was very fresh and tasty. A bit pricy, so look at menu prior to booking. Need a reservation. They had a pretty good band, pleasant listening while you ate. Might have been a bit loud if you have more than two people. They could have made our experience stand out if they had handled something better. We were sitting outside, we had a bottle of wine. When my glass was still pretty full, a fly dive bombed into my wine. Not their fault, they quickly offered to bring me a clean glass-- but would have been nice to have offered to bring a half glass of wine in that new glass. Otherwise, we had a nice dinner there

This is one of our favorite places to eat every time we go to Kauai. They never disappoint. The atmosphere is relaxing, the pond is great to sit by, the fresh catch of the day is awesome and of course the hula pie at the end!!! Yum! I highly recommend reservations. We had made ours before our trip with open table. When we walked up to check in, I could hear the other people waiting talking about the wait being an hour or more. There were tons of people waiting for a table. With our reservations, we walked right in and our table was ready. This place is a MUST if you are in Kauai.

Food was terrific. The food arrived quickly ....almost too quickly. The ambiance is such that you really don’t want to hurry. Enjoyed the Hawaiian music and the hula dancer. Service was great.

Great ambiance and my wife and daughter enjoyed their fish entrees. Our waitress was over the top kind and helpful. But I had the beef and the beef and chicken skewers which were mediocre at best. In fact the chicken skewers were so undercooked and rubbery I couldn’t eat them.

LOVED this restaurant! Live music, attentive servers, cool ambiance, deliciously fresh food (best seafood risotto I’ve ever had), and the heavenly Hula Pie. Our favorite restaurant on the island so far! We even got a coupon for a free Hula Pie with our next visit!

This is more a food factory than a restaurant; the service good but rushed; the fish overcooked; the atmosphere pretty but plastic. Every beach resort area in the country has one of these. Go instead to any of several nearby places that have genuine atmosphere and a far better kitchen.

Lovely garden setting with fantastic local sustainability caught wild Hawaii fish. Food was perfectly prepared. Ambiance was exceptional. Live acoustic guitar music and Hulu dancer. Bar had the game on but was set inside. Pretty quiet for conversation. Servers were very exceptionally well trained and knowledgeable on all aspects of cuisine.
